SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Turkey’s National Security Council on Thursday reiterated its continuity to carry out operations outside of the country’s borders against the PKK.

Turkey’s National Security Council in Ankara under the leadership of Recep Tayyip Erdogan convened on Thursday.

After three hours of meeting the council in a statement said, “Turkey determined to keep fighting outside of the country’s border”, noting “it will fight all manners of danger including the Kurdistan Worker’s Party terrorist organization and its offshoots”.

The PKK is designated as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States, and the European Union and launched its insurgency for Kurdish self-rule in 1984. More than 40,000 people have been killed in its conflict with the Turkish state.
